Each year the Hutt City Council gives out a number of Civic Honour Awards to recognise people who have given outstanding and innovative voluntary service to others.
Awards are made across a number of areas– community service, cultural affairs, educational service, environmental, and youth activities.
Lower Hutt Mayor Campbell Barry says the awards are an opportunity to celebrate the longstanding contributions local people who make the community a kinder, and better place to live.”
“Our city is filled with people who give massive amounts of voluntary service to the community. Our Civic Honour Awards are an important way we can recognise their contributions to our community and show the city appreciates their service.”
“In making these awards we rely on people to identify and nominate volunteers they know themselves. I encourage people to visit our website and make a nomination.”
Nominations can be made on the Hutt City Council website at: huttcity.govt.nz/civicawards, and close at 5pm on Friday 3 April.
